Amogh Gowda

Troy, Michigan

Amogh Gowda, 17, of Troy, Mich., a junior at Troy High School, was inspired by a teacher’s experience with kidney failure to begin “Gift8Lives,” an organ donation awareness campaign. He earned the Gift of Life Michigan certified volunteer certification to bolster his credentials, and now speaks at venues and volunteers at community events to empower youth and promote the fact that one organ donor can save up to eight lives.
